Comment On This Article

Another week has passed us by, and for this upcoming week, we will have a thorough performance look at the latest version of Cedega (v5.1) that was recently released as well as a performance look at Fedora Core 4/Fedora Core 5. In addition, we will have our usual wobble of hardware previews and reviews. However, for this past week we began with a look at the DFI Infinity nForce4 Ultra. This motherboard boasts a single PCI Express x16 interface, Socket 939 with support for AMD Athlon 64 X2 and Opteron 100 processors, and a host of DFI innovations that have been adopted from their LAN Party series. As the week before we had a article on AMD's Cool 'n' Quiet, we proceeded with an Enhanced Intel SpeedStep (EIST) investigation. Certainly the technology from Geyserville and original SpeedStep have improved to make the mobile computing experience, as well as desktops, more pleasurable. On the software side of things, we had covered Nexuiz v1.5 and Berry Linux v0.67. This morning, we also posted a plethora of screenshots from a fresh compilation of GNOME v2.14 (v2.13.91) that was built from Fedora Core 5 Rawhide. Ending things off, this week we also launched our new Phoronix site interface.
